Don’t be a fool and miss out!

With the second edition of the Fools and Fans Beer Festival happening this Saturday the 7th of April in Greyton, Burger Brews caught up with the festival’s founder, Trevor Gerntholtz, to get some more info on this awesome event. The Bru: How does a renowned Nephrologist from JHB go from that to living in Cape…

The Eatery Wood Fired Grill

It was a case of third time lucky when we visited The Eatery in Claremont. The previous two occasions didn’t pan out due to some of the other bru’s having to pull out, one reason being that a bru decided he would rather go ski in Austria. Like, seriously, a skiing holiday over a burger…

Say what? Eating burgers can be good for cyclists?

You better believe it! A burger need not be an unhealthy meal option. We all know that long rides leave us meat-lovers gagging for a lovingly prepared burger to be gorged upon… well, I am here to let you know that it is very possible to incorporate red meat into your cycling diet. On the…

Tiger’s Milk, Kloof Street (Bar Splendido)

It was a night of strange beginnings as our intention had been to review another eatery, situated in Bree Street. On arrival we were greeted, not by the warm welcome of a maitre d’, but by the sight of a seemingly closed down restaurant. This was very odd as the booking had been made and…

Fat Cactus – Gardens

It was a freakishly hot evening when we visited this restaurant, with the temperature being close to 30 degrees when we arrived. The restaurant is situated in Park Rd (soon to be renamed Thereisnowheretopark Rd) which was buzzing with diners from each of the streets’ restaurants enjoying the start of the holiday season. Once seated…

Banana Jam Café

We visited this Caribbean-themed Kenilworth institution on a stormy summer’s night. Unfortunately, one of our foursome was struck down during the day with a terrible case of IdontknowwhatthehellhitmebutIammandown-ilitis and was unable to join us. He did, however, manage to book us an outside table on the only night Cape Town has seen rain in an…
